Provided the release date is still May 4, I hope to see it in this Sunday's BestBuy ad under new releases for Tuesday.  If not, hopefully my local Rasputin's will have it available in-store!

I guess they all missed the meeting.

Frontiers is the US Distributor for the new album, see my other post on Super D Thread.

And yes if you need cd drive here to get yours.
We get shoppers from all over the world.

I GOT IT!  I GOT IT!  I GOT IT!!!     *doing happy Snoopy dance*

I went to BestBuy after work yesterday, because I wanted to get the movie "Nine" that just came out on dvd.  I wandered over to the ASIA section for cds, and what do I see in the front of that section, in all its grey & white glory, tiger face and all?  \m/  \m/  It was the only copy too!  Limited edition digipak, put out by Frontiers, with "Emily" as the bonus track!  Ohhh yeah, I snagged it right up, $14.99 price tag & all! 

I was smiling & telling the cashier how happy I was that they had it, that I got the last/only copy they had.  The cashier was a college-aged young lad.  He looked at the cd, and he goes "Who are these guys?"  I had to explain to him that the guys were in YES, ELP...and then I stopped myself and then told him "Uhhh, go ask your parents or aunts & uncles, they'll know."  He asked what songs they did, and I told him about the usual hits--and then told him to YouTube 'em.      That would be cool if he does and likes what he sees/hears!

Anyways, go on over to the store & look yourself for OMEGA, you may be surprised!

Just bought a copy of Omega at a Best Buy in the Chicagoland area.  There were two on hand, and now there is only one   Its the digipak version with Emily.  Only had a downloaded version before, so I am happy to finally know all of the words and have the artwork!

Well, I am depressed.  My plan blew up. Although I bought the download last week and I LOVE the new release, I wanted to wait to get the hard copy CD in my hot little hands from a local store and not have to wait for shipping.  However, can you belive in there is not a copy anywhere I can find in the TAMPA/ST PETERSBURG FLORIDA market??!!  No Florida stop on the tour either.  WTF?  This is a major problem and I have to echo earlier sentiments that Frontiers dropped the ball BIG TIME on this one.  I have checked Best Buys, they said they will NOT be carrying it, what ever that means, No  Borders Books and Music carry it, None in any WalMarts, none in Barnes & Noble and None in FYE Music stores.  How could this be???  Someone from Frontiers needs must be reading this and needs to come up with some answers...Are you guys reading this??????

Yesterday I picked up the one copy the local Best Buy had here in The Bronx, NY. It was the Frontiers import at a mere $14.99.

Peace,

Jeff

I picked up two copies today at Best Buy in Milwaukee for $11.99 apiece.  It is the original pressing with "Emily" on it.

Mom will be quite pleased with her Mother's Day gift.

So far I've not found it at any of the Best Buy stores in Eastern SoCal (Inland Empire). Will try my local independent this week (Rhino in Claremont) as they usually stock recent-prog releases.

I am sure that the band's administrative types might know this, but is there any understanding of what happened to Best Buy carrying the album?  Are any other chains expected to carry it?  Is this a Frontiers issue, or yet another "music industry" hassle?

In my searching I have come to realize just how sad a state the record store business is actually in. There's not much to choose from besides the big retailers and they are clueless. I have now either visited or called every Best Buy in my area and they have nothing. I realize I could end my problem now just by ordering it online or downloading, but I keep thinking I'm gonna find it.
